#6 - The Villain/Cactus Jack (1979)

Load your seven-shooters and watch out for falling boulders because this week hosts Cam Smith and Tony G are gettin' wacky with Hal Needham's bizarre western ode to Looney Tunes, The Villain (aka Cactus Jack). Featuring Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas as a scheming rascal out to rob Arnie and Ann-Margret, this is one undeniably weird entry in the big guy's filmography. But is it worth watching? Saddle up and join the duo as they battle to make sense of 90 minutes worth of pratfalls, cornball jokes, winking attempts at sexiness and highly problematic Aboriginal representations.
